Joe at Dimension2 gave me a little heads up about these huge headstocks that were part of the Clipstone coal mine. We went to check it out with the helicam. The wind was pretty strong so flying was a little sketchy. The building has some serious security fencing around it now, so getting in by foot isn’t an (easy) option.
Filming withD2 for the IronmanBolton2013. Sports Pursuit commissioned us to follow a handful of contestants as they took part in this 140 mile beast of a triathlon. Above is the edit put together by the D2 guys. It was an enjoyable weekend, not sure Ill be taking part in any events like this too soon however..
Been working on this edit for the past 3.5 months. It’s been an ever upgrading/ tweaking project, but now I finally feel its at a stage where its complete. I’m stoked on the outcome.
Why the name Nuptial Flight? Well that is the term given to the phase in which most ant species will take to the skies to mate and form new colonies. I call the Quad-copter used to film this, the flying ant… so, yeah.
“The #passitonproject is an idea we came up with more or less spontaneously. My new Speedodeeps snowboard — a powder-specific board I’ve been designing with Lib Technologies for several years now to replace the Banana Hammock; I really think it rides like nothing else out there — showed up at the Asymbol studio a few weeks ago, and we just started kicking around this idea:
What if we sent it out into the world for people to ride and pass along, from snowboarder to snowboarder?”
We went out shooting one day to see what we could create. I had the idea of making my first sequenced stereographic projection. It was quite a challenge to think of how this image would come together, but it did come together and the results are mind warping…

Made some time to put this edit together. A collection of shots captured with theacrylic GoPro pole. All filmed atWhitewater Ski Resort, BC, Canada. Most of the footage is 48fps so the slowmotion stuff came out really nice. The GoPro3 doesn’t seem to like overcast conditions all that much, it was all rather dark and dull looking. Never the less, I’m really happy with how this video turned out. Enjoy.
